Hello MCJ readers.
My name is Cavalier “Chevy” Johnson and I am running for the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors representing District 10. I was born and raised right here in Milwaukee.
I’ve lived in and immediately surrounding the 10th District my entire life.
I’ve been an active member of our community for 10 years; from helping seniors shovel snow, to doing community clean ups with the Milwaukee Police Department, to being a regular blood donor for nearly seven years – I’ve been here and have committed myself to making Milwaukee a better place.
I graduated from Bay View High School, the same school where my dad earned his high school diploma.
As a recipient of the Milwaukee Community Journal’s Dr. Terence N. Thomas scholarship, I went on to graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and being the first in my family to earn a college degree. While at Madison,
I studied Political Science, interned at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, worked as a Resident Director overseeing multiple properties and thousands of students, volunteered in New Orleans just months after Hurricane Katrina, studied in London and traveled to Iowa to spread the good word about a man named Barack Obama who would later become President of the United States.
I want to serve on the Milwaukee County Board because I care about Milwaukee, its people and its future.
I want to help bring new ideas and development to the Central City that will bring jobs, safety and pride back to our neighborhoods – along with bringing life back to our commercial corridors.
I want to fight for not partial, but full funding for our bus system; expand opportunities for youth and create true open, accessible and accountable government.
My name is Cavalier Johnson and I would be honored to continue my tradition of serve as your next Milwaukee County Supervisor.
